Gun Control

TheTraitorToTyranny
Amedexyius

Gun control is a completely unnecessary and near-idiotic idea promoted by the current left wing politicians, both in office domestically, and abroad. In the wake of the shooting of a gay bar in Orlando, it is necessary for members of LGBTQ to take action, and to take the responsibility of defending themselves into their own hands. Already, groups have been formed nationwide dedicated to this idea. Not only should members of the LGBTQ community defend themselves, but the general American public s...

Making weed legal for more than medical purposes

Voodoo1
Masonh928

So I am for legalization, mainly because it can benefit us in so many ways. If we take a look at Colorado we can see the benefits, less crime and also we can regulate what kind of weed there is getting sold and we can help people who gets addicted better than if they were to buy it from a drug dealer, who will usually try to sell you even more drugs. Another point is that a lot of criminals make lots of money off selling weed and by making it legal they will lose a large portion of their busines...

Why Does Mankind Refuse to accept the existence of God, choosing Hell over Heaven?

FollowerofChrist1955

“Paradise Lost” Here at least we shall be free; the Almighty hath not built Here for his envy, will not drive us hence: Here we may reign secure, and in my choice to reign is worth ambition though in Hell: Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven. Does Humanity view the world in such ways. Though professing to know no God, neither is he want to seek God. Knowing the severity of conseq...

Is the bible real?

TheLogic
Ubermensch-Tsoa

First, let's talk about the obvious inconsistency: time. Christians claim that the earth was created only a few thousand years ago. Science has proven this to be false. For one, there is carbon dating. Carbon dating is a process used to determine the relative age in certain objects. This has told us countless times that there were objects on the earth BILLIONS of years ago. In fact just a few years ago in 2014, a crystal was found that is 4.4 billion years old. Explain that....

Landfills are a better option than incinerators for waste disposal

qwerty17
the_asian_on_the_web

1. Most new landfills are built as lined facility, with leachate collection and treatment on-site. Because landfills are designed and built to store waste, they are a safe containment of our garbage. 2. Methane gas is collected at a number of municipal waste landfills and some landfills have diesel/gas blended fuel fired electrical generation stations built on them. Therefore, they are a "free" source of fuel to generate electricity. 3. Upon closing of a landfill, some beneficial usage o...

Is the West the best?

BrandonHyde
HeavenlyPanda

Is the West the best? Is Western culture the most developed and accepting, and do they have the greater morals? I am for the West being the best. Other cultures simply are backward in various aspects of culture, and some are simply just intolerant. The West has the greatest of countries and the greatest diversity of people - blacks who live by Western principles, Asians who live by Western principles, Muslims who live by Western principles, etc. Shared by these different ethnicities is peace and...
